Description: The Liberator is a rare early twentieth-century Los Angeles news periodical that chronicled issues and events in Los Angeles's African American community. In the words of its publisher: the Liberator is an independent Afro-American journal, devoted to the interest of society and the race in particular. It will put forth its best efforts to encourage independent thought and action among Afro-Americans, believing, as we do that every man ought to do his own thinking, and, thinking, should act. We believe in independence in local politics as the best means of securing clean, economical administration of local affairs. We believe that the Afro-Americans can best promote their interest by becoming members of all political parties. Division in politics is advocated by Prof. Booker T. Washington, Bishop Walters and other distinguished leaders of the race.
